Hiking/Nature Trail

Hiking/Nature Trail

The natural beauty of the park can best be enjoyed along one of the nature trails. The Apalachicola River Bluffs Trail offers a view of the river, Confederate gun pits, bluffs and hardwood forests. The Weeping Ridge Trail provides a healthy and pleasant walk to one of the park's deep ravines. A seven-mile loop hiking trail meanders through the park, exposing the hiker to virtually all the park's natural features. These trails are part of the Florida National Scenic Trail and are maintained by Florida Trail Association volunteers.
